    Upgrade vs. Full

    If a computer has Windows 98 and I want to install Windows 2000, but it's a full version instead of an upgrade, will that matter?

    Thanks

    Shouldn't make a difference at all.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Just make sure all your hardware is supported by Win2k and that you have Win2k drivers before you install the OS. Win2k was/is intended to be a business OS and does not support the wide range of hardware that the 9X & XP bases do. Also, make sure that you have enough RAM (256 MB would be good for most users), a large enough disk and powerful enough CPU.
